ANALOG RECEPTION IS SUPERIOR to digital non-reception by Mr. Stabby
I live 40 miles+ from the nearest city and I get many more channels with digital than analog, using an indoor antenna. I did find that my HDTivo's tuner pulled in more digital stations than my Samsung plasma TV, so digital tuners do vary.

Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers. by Colin Stamp
Hi all, I'm thinking of buying a set of decent 2.1 speakers so replace the cheap Creative ones I currently use with my TV. I want some with remote control for volume, bass and treble. So far, Altec Lansing FX4021 seems to be the front runner. One possible problem though, could be that I've modified the TV to cut the mains power to the speakers when I turn it off. That's fine of the current ...

Virgin V+ STB by ChrisM
Noticed there is a selection of Virgin V+ PVR boxes for sale on eBay. Would I be right in thinking these should not be sold, and that they remain the property of VirginMedia. Purely hypothetical now... Given that, if I was tempted to buy one anyway, would it work as a PVR, would my existing card (I have a regular (non-PVR) Pace Virgin Digital Cable TV Box)... -- Regards,

DOGs by Paul D.Smith
You're all probably more observant than me but I've just noticed the following: - On programmes, which I'm watching because I want to, there is an annoying DOG. The broadcasters tell me that is because I'm too thick to remember which channel for more than 5s, despite the face that if I'm watching NCIS (say), I must be on Five (or FiveUS perhaps?). - An adverts, where I find the same...

New Television by John[_6_]
I'm thinking of getting an LCD television in the sales. I just have a couple of questions for those more in the know than me. Full 1080 HD Televisions is there a certain size of screen that you have to get or above for full HD, or can you get full HD in most screen sizes? I didn't want to get something too big, maybe only a 26 or 32" screen size. If I was to get a full HD screen, would I still...

troublesome muxes by Bill Wright
I'm thinking of compiling a list of muxes on 28.2 that are more troublesome than average. This is especially with regard to large distribution systems. There are many different factors that cause problems with certain muxes. If anyone has any specific experience of reception problems on certain muxes, especially if they managed to find out the cause of the problem, I'd be interested to hear...

Blu-ray - Anyone got a player? by Dr Hfuhruhurr
Anyone got a Blu-Ray player? Anyone got a PS3? Anyone got both? How do they compare? Is it worth getting a standalone player or (for the kids sake of course) does the PS3 do as good a job? So many questions....... Cheers

Freeview signal problem by Jeff Layman
At present I have a group A 15-element aerial (Crystal Palace) and a group C-D 18-element aerial (Midhurst) connected via a passive combiner to a 26 dB labgear masthead amp. The output of that feeds about 10 metres of coax (unknown quality, but about 2 years old) connected to a passive triple splitter in the loft. That feeds 3 separate rooms by at least 10 meters of unknown quality coax...
